This Ancient China unit features 5 stations for cooperative student learning. Students rotate through stations featuring: The early dynasties (Shang, Xia), The Zhou Dynasty (Warring States period, Social Order), The teachings (Buddhism, Daoism, Confucianism and Legalism), The Qin Dynasty (Great Wall, Shi Huangdi), and the Han Dynasty and Ancient China Inventions (yo-yo, silk, gunpowder, wheelbarrow)
Each station includes a station 'placard' and activities to set up the station. Some are reading stations, some sort tangrams or word cards, other access a printable biocube or websites (students can use i-pads to refer to the websites. Printable materials are also included)
As students rotate through the stations, they complete an ABC Book featuring vocabulary from each station. The ABC Book and Learning Packet are designed to be used as an alternative Summative Assessment for an Ancient China Unit.
Completely updated, most of the pages are now editable.
